Critique my Thoroughbred

I just want to know what other people out there think of his conformation. He and I currently jump 4'0" in lessons and 3'6"-4'0" in shows. How well do you think he is built to do the job he so deeply loves? (for pics of jumping go to my page and my album)

Cannot tell much from these photos (other than he looks cute). He seems to have a hunter's bump or he may just need a bit more weight.

From what you can see, he is definitely high in the wither, but that is common of TB's.
Roach-backed as well
Neck needs alot of work. It is too skinny and seemingly somewhat ewed as well
I like the overall shape of his hindquarters, though they need more muscling
Cannons and pasterns are a tad long
Apart from that, you can't really tell much from the photos

Either tie him or have someone help you by holding him or taking photos while you hold him.

And yes, there are some gashes on him. That is recent and they are healing very well. My twins horse attacked him in pasture. He is back to work now though and just fine.

He was a racer to begin with. And his neck is a product of being owned previously by a man who really only used him for his experienced riders lesson horse, also early gelding. I do agree about his weight and trust me, he looks alot better now than he did when I bought him... I've done alot as is. Hahaha

This is us jumping (one jump)3'11"-(mostly)4'0". Yes, he did save my sorry butt on the downhill jump. LOL, and when my trainer says "second time" he ticked it on the first run, didnt like that at ALL. Lol tell me what you think. We have jumped 4'3" cources since then and my form has improved, but I wanted to see what yall thought about this lesson.

This TB is very nice for jumping. His pasterns are at a natural angle and are too upright or too low. He has natural long forearm which helps with his length of stide, although his shoulder is a little stratighter than most would like, but it is still suitable for what you are doing, and his pasterns match his angle of shoulder so that is really good. He has a lot of collection and uses his hindend for motion which is good. More bend to his hock would benefit him well but that's his natural comformation and there is no way to fix that but all in all he looks fine for jumping. As long as he likes to do it and he isn't harming himself, he seems suitable for his job. And honestly he could use a little bit more weight but he is the ideal body condition for a hunter, so all in all he should be good. TBs are typically better at jumping due to their conformation and natural ability to be agile. Hope this helps.
